"...The “green” just kind of hits you about the same time the cooler air does, and you know you’re there....."
It’s easy to spot the areas of our valley that are fortunate enough to have flood irrigation. The “green” just kind of hits you about the same time the cooler air does, and you know you’re there.
Driving in to Phoenix’s Country Club Manor is no different. Sure, you’ve got the Country Club’s parking lot that doesn’t do much to quell the summer’s heat, but just a little further in, and… ahhhh.
Nestled among the busy streets of central Phoenix, the Phoenix Country Club provides a sanctuary and oasis for its homeowners, members and guests year round. Established in 1899, and having hosted the Phoenix Open for 50 years, the historic ambiance is pervasive throughout, captured by photos of the varying faces of the Club and its surroundings, the golfing greats and legends and community leaders including Arizona’s beloved Bob and Barry Goldwater. A recent remodel has retained the historic aspects of the Club, melding them with the best the 21st Century has to offer.
Surrounding the club, are private estates. These palatial pads aren’t for the first time home buyer (unless you hit it big in the Arizona State Lottery) but for those who can afford it, these estates afford all the luxury of old-Hollywood with a rich history unique to each home. Jerry Colangelo calls Country Club Manor “Home” as does John Vatistas and Dr Scott and Holly Gieszl.
Joel & Carolyn Greenberg bought a home here a year ago and have made great use of the club’s pool amenities. “with twin 6 year olds, we didn’t want a private pool to fence off in the backyard, so we bought a membership at the club. We just walk the kids across the street and they’re swimming!”
"The Club’s swimming facility offers three recently renovated pools for member use. The competition pool is heated for year round enjoyment. A large game pool and smaller toddler pool are also available. Adult and child swimming lessons, water aerobics and social activities are scheduled throughout the year. The Club offers a spring, summer and fall swim team with children participation ranging from 50-130 swimmers. A unique summer camp for children ages 4 and over is offered in a full day or half day format. A wide variety of swimming merchandise is carried in the pool side swim shop. The new Goldwater Grill offering a diverse food and beverage menu is also available seven days a week." Read more…
For those who prefer a more private swim, Country Club Manor delivers. Most of the homes are on large parcels of land, so pools have the added luxury of being beautifully integrated in to the landscape. Who wouldn’t want a swim in one of these pools?
